The water system in our area is top-notch, but there’s more to keeping water clean than removing bacteria or contaminants. Hard water usually slips right through the civic cleaning systems, and while it’s not actively harmful, it can cause a lot of low-grade trouble in your house.
You may need a water softener system to remove hard water from your supply and solve a lot of problems in the process. The experts at Mallick Plumbing & Heating, Inc. can install a water softener in your system without delay, and keep it maintained for as long as you need it.
Hard water is simply water with a high mineral content, usually calcium or magnesium, which seeps into our drinking water from time to time. If you notice that you have a hard time working up soap lather in your water, or if there are visible films left on shower and sink surfaces, then your home probably has hard water. The good news is that you can drink it safely, since the body can absorb those minerals without ill effect, however you may notice that strange metallic taste in your drinking water.
While hard water may not be harmful to your health, it does pose a threat in how it affects plumbing, appliances, and fixtures. For example, you may notice crusty white buildup on your faucets and fixtures. Showers can feel harsher and using hard water in your laundry system will cause your colors to fade and your clothes to wear out faster than they should. It may not be dangerous, but hard water is no friend to your household. That's why you may need to consider a water softener installation in Gaithersburg.
A water softener is a simple device, installed by Mallick Plumbing & Heating, Inc. at the apex of the water line at to your home. It scrubs the water clean of mineral deposits through a small tank filled with polystyrene beads that perform an ion exchange on the minerals. As a result, your water tastes much cleaner than it might otherwise.
You can see the difference by filling an ice cube tray with water from your faucet, then filling a second one with bottled water from the store. The bottled water will be much clearer than the one from the faucet. The same principle applies to your faucet heads, which will be free of that odd white build–up, and your laundry, which will help your clothes feel softer and retain their colors longer.
A water softener is a low-maintenance device, provided it gets cleaned on a regular basis, but it still requires professional installation. The right service will ensure that there are no problems from the get-go, as well as setting up maintenance sessions to keep it functioning at its best and repair sessions for those few occasions when something more serious is called for.
